“a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The hotel is rather basic, with not much storage space if staying for more than a few days. TV had no English speaking channels, and the pool was empty, though it was still August/September.
We thought the food was good, but portions were very small and overpriced. Meals in the village were cheaper and better.Breakfast was included, but again was fairly mean,e.g one croissant each, one slice of bread /toast, a little cold meat,one pat of butter, not exactly generous though enough for us as we are not breakfast fans. I think a hungry family might have been a bit disappointed. The owners were very nice people and very helpful. There was free secure parking, in fact we could not get out the morning we left as the car park was locked and was not opened until 8.00am.

Room Tip: rooms at the back overlooking the garden are quieter

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

We didn't stay at the hotel, but were fortunate to eat dinner there, having discovered it by asking people in town to recommend a restaurant. What an amazing discovery.

Salvador takes such pride in his establishment AND his cooking. We started with a glass of cava in the garden, then moved on to the six course 'surprise' tasting menu in the restaurant. Having explained our differing tastes to him, he then produced six courses (plus amuse bouches) of the highest quality and creativity. It is so refreshing to find such different, gourmet food in a small town in the mountains - almost as surprising was how low the bill was - such good value considering it included wine, water, coffee etc., not to mention fabulous service.

Do eat here - you will not be disappointed. The hotel looked lovely, and next time we will be staying here and looking forward to another wonderful meal.

We stayed at the Xalet la Coromina for one night in Sep 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a charming little room looking onto the hotel's garden and were treated to what must be one of the best meals we ever had by chef Salvador. I can highly recommend this place and hope to be able to return one day.

We live near the Montseny region and travel all over looking for the best restaurants.
Together with Torre Simon in Tona this has to be our favourite. Salvador is a very talented chef and a warm and generous host. Despite the modest price of 25 euro, his tasting menu reminds me of what flavoursome food tastes like - try the lentils with foie or the delightful salad of barat al escabeche.
Our meal here was a welcome change from the too-often bland and repetitive menus found throughout rural catalonia.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: let Salvador recommend what is fresh that day
